NRA head resigns.

NRA Executive Vice President, J. Warren Cassidy, has resigned from his post effective 22 February, 1991 citing "personal" reasons.

He has faced allegations of declining NRA membership, poor judgement in moving the data processing division away from headquarters, and sexual discrimination in his dealings with employees. The last allegation resulted in a half-million dollar payout in an out of court settlement.

Reports of the NRA's internal strife became more apparent when his candidate for President was rebuffed by the Board of Directors, and Dick Riley was elected to that position last year.

Gary Anderson, Executive Director of NRA General Operations, will serve as acting Executive Vice President until a replacement is elected in April.
